Artist's Description

I heard this guy play slide guitar on teh Pont d’Arcole in Paris. I was quite tired and cold at that point and decided to sit and listen on one of the benches. His playing was excellent (as a musiciant I tend to understand these things so I am not speaking in Hyperbole), and he had quite a repertoire.

It made me think of all the musicians I know eking out an existance by playing gigs that pay badly or end up busking just to make ends meet. So the treatment represents a bit of that mood I felt at t hat point.

Taken with my trusted travelcamera – a Canon EOS 7D and my favourite portrait lens – a Sigma 105 mm f2.8 macro.
